Few hours after the AFCON 2019 qualifier match against Libya,  Chelsea, Arsenal and Bordeaux have reacted to Super Eagles’ 4-0 victory over Libya in the 2019 African Cup of Nations, AFCON, qualifying encounter played on Saturday evening.



It will be recalled that the three goals from Changchun Yatai star, Odion Ighalo, and a goal from Kalu Uche, ensured that the Super Eagles took all three points in Uyo.

The two Premier League clubs, monitored the game due to their respective players, Ola Aina and Alex Iwobi, who were in action for Gernot Rohr’s side. In their match review, Chelsea stated through their official website, that: ”Ola Aina also started on the bench for Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier but he was introduced into the action much sooner. ”An injury led to our 22-year-old defender, who is currently on-loan in Italy at Torino, coming on after just 18 minutes of a home game against Libya. Nigeria were 1-0 up at that stage and Aina was able to play his part in a clean-sheet performance, with the Super Eagles running out 4-0 winners despite being without our former midfielder and their current captain John Mikel Obi due to injury. Kenneth Omeruo was an unused sub.”

On their part, Arsenal also stated through their official website that: ”Alex Iwobi claimed an assist in Nigeria’s 4-0 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying win over Libya…. ”Iwobi then set up Ighalo’s second with an inch-perfect through ball, with the former Watford striker claiming his hat-trick soon after. ”

In the meantime, Nigeria will travel to Tunisia to take on Libya in the return leg on tomorrow Tuesday 16 October 2018.
